The Slow Food Movement is an international movement that began in Italy in 1986 as an endeavor to keep a McDonald’s from opening near the Spanish Steps in Rome. In that year a Slow Food Manifesto was signed by delegates from fifteen countries in protest against big international business interests. The Movement now has over 100,000 members in 132 countries with hundreds of regional chapters around the world.
